WEEK 8 (February 22 – 26): Forthcoming economic news-releases

With recent negotiations between OPEC and Russia to freeze oil production, oil prices look more stable now. There is possible that the oil prices will go down, but it is considered by many specialists as a “black swan event”. A lot of countries are interested to keep the actual price. Improving data from US showed strength of US markets and moved the EUR/USD rate down again. But the agreement between EU and UK may give a support to EUR. The next week will give us the answer.
